New Life Ministry

Mission in Bulgaria

February 2009

Our Jesus is so good…
A couple of days ago we came back from a blessed missionary trip which we made in Bulgaria and Romania... We visited our friends in Vidin where pastor Aliosha's church welcomed us with much joy... Pastor Marc Bristow had the privelege to visit that church and see the broken synthesizer they play music with and praise God, so he sent us some funds and we bought a new one. They were jumping with joy around the new playing instrument and were happy like small kids... We danced and praised the Lord together, we were happy to be in His presence and with much joy shared His words, and the hungry for life people there accpeted them...

After that, together with pastor Aliosha and his wife, we decided to go to Romania - Kalafat... We took some food and visited our new friends... It was a big surprise for them... It was our third visit there and we are happy God uses us in this city... People there are also poor... For a short time, 30 people gathered together with great expectation... We encouraged them, they sang songs in Romanian, we prayed and we left much happy that we did God's will... God connected us with a family with 7 children that are really poor. They live in two small rooms, have no timber for heating and the weather was really cold... Our friends from Switzerland blessed the poor with food and timber so we gave them some funds to buy timber. They thanked God for His mercy... 
God sent us there in the right time... It is great to do God's will...

On the next day we left a lot of food in Vidin which we had bought with the help of GVC church in Switzerland. We gave to those who needed and our hearts were filled up with joy... We went to Brestnitsa and there we felt really blessed to have joy with the treasures there... While traveling by car to there we stopped in a shop where we bought food for the kitchen in Brestnitsa... When poeple there saw the car they immediately came... They want more and more from God's word... So much love, joy and hunger for God we haven't seen anywhere else... It was a really blessed time...
This time we didn't hear about healings but next time we hope to hear testimonies. Still, we are very happy that a man accepted Jesus and gave Him his life and this is the most important part when somebody gets saved, we could give food to the hungry people and got back home happy...

Many thanks to all prayer partners and thank you for the financial support...

Blessings, peace and joy be in your life,
